It'd be pretty hard to build a PC that runs off one cord (l).

RE: How old is your PC?
Nearly 2 years, with a HDD upgrade and soon a RAM upgrade:

Intel Pentium 4 - 2.80GHz
512MB DDR RAM (soon to be 2GB)
160GB HDD + 80GB HDD
WinXP Pro Spanish

I forget about the other specs, but video and all is very decent. Cost me a small fortune, so it should be. :P

Hack, hack, hack!

We got it from a cousin who built it for us when I was 14. I was told at the time it was a good PC for a good price... $1997

XP Home
AMD Athlon XP 2500+ @1.83Ghz Edit: Just overclocked to 2.2Ghz
2x 256Mb Kingmax DDR-400 Mhz
Nvidea GeForce FX-5200 128Mb
80GB HDD

I've still got the email with all the details.

Well the current laptop is only...4 weeks old. My last one (XP Home, 40 GB hd...don't remember anything else) was coming up on 4 years but it kept switching itself off at inconvient times (like in the middle of writing essays) and was running like a pile of mince. Anyways, the current one:

Advent 9115
Windows Vista Home Premium
Intel Pentium Dual CPU 1.46 Ghz
2GB RAM
120GB HD
DVD Re-Writer

I'll never forget how lucky I was 6391 days, 1 hour, 15 seconds ago
